An adorable sleeveless dress, pretty lace bolero jacket and knitted hat create this delightful and very girlie outfit. The sleeveless dress has a lined bodice, trimmed with eyelet lace and ribbon, atop a full gathered 4-tier skirt. The skirt has frayed hem edges and lace trim on the bottom layer to give the dress a soft look. The top tier is gathered on the left and adorned with a bow. The dress closes with Velcro in back.
The very easy long-sleeved bolero jacket is constructed with a Center Back seam, two side seams and a facing for a neat finish. The Jacket front is decorated with ribbon roses or buttons and embroidery stitches if desired.
Bonus Pattern: The very easy knitted Rolled Brim Hat has ribbon threaded just above the brim and is decorated to match the jacket. This easy PDF pattern is designed to fit 14.5” dolls such as WellieWishers®, but is also available for 18" dolls such as American Girl®.
